Skyler - 1 Month Old!

Sky has been doing great! She is 9 pounds 12 ounces and 22 inches (up from 7 pounds 4 ounces and 20 inches at birth). She's a content baby, as long as she's being held. I usually can't get away with putting her down for too long, so I've been wearing her a lot.

She's not really on a set napping schedule yet but she's been sleeping pretty well at night. She's been going to bed around 8 and waking up at 7, like Kaylee and Brynna, which is really nice. If I'm lucky, she only wakes up 3 times to nurse and goes right back to sleep.

We had a bad case of thrush this month which made nursing pretty painful. I ended up switching to bottles, although still trying to nurse at least once a day so she didn't forget how. The thrush finally cleared up so we have started breastfeeding again. She still has 1 or 2 bottles a day, so Steven can feed her while I spend time with the older kids.

Kay and Bryn just adore her and love helping me take care of her. Bryn can be a bit jealous at times and need extra attention. Kay can be a little possessive of the baby and gets cranky with Bryn when she wants to spend time with her. But all in all, I'd say they've adjusted pretty well.

Her room is finally ready, although I'm not quite ready to move her into it. Maybe next month.

She's been starting to smile, and it's just the most adorable thing ever!! She's also doing a great job of holding her head up! Can't wait for the next month of watching this sweet little girl grow. :)

Friday Finds and Favorites #10

Wow, I can't believe it's out 10th hop already! And I can't believe it's the last week of August. Time is flying!!

Sky is already 1 month old today! And while she is not quite old enough for toys, I'm already thinking about what I want to get her. After 2 kids, we have a lot of toys already, so she won't be needing much. But one thing I am definitely going to get her is a Waldorf doll. Kay and Bryn each have their own beautiful custom doll made by Fuzz and Sunshine, and hopefully Sky will love hers as much as they do. :)




And while we honestly do have more than enough dolls and stuffed toys, I recently discovered Under The Nile and couldn't resist ordering a few things. (They also have super cute clothes too!)

Friday Finds and Favorites #9

Yay, it's finally Friday! I hope everyone had a good week. :) I wouldn't say I had a bad one, but I've been battling thrush and just when I think it's gone, it comes back. Because of that, it's been too painful for me to breastfeed Sky. That leads me to my favorite find of the week, the Dr. Brown bottle. We tried several types of bottles and they all made her gag. I'm so glad we found one that works for her!
